We didn't have any family in town for Thanksgiving so we decided to do a bit of hiking. What I thought would be bad lighting turned out to be... not so bad. As always the blue sky created some nice contrast to the gold grasses and red rocks.--------------------Follow me for daily posts of Colorado beauty! #pixelperfect--------------------
How many more years will Americans see the value in the preservation of our countries raw land. Not the value in the gains from selling and draining the amazing resources that reside within. Can we not find another way to evolve as a species without the destruction of what once was a unified ecosystem between man & nature? People complain of a $70 fee to enjoy what isn't their's. Some may never realize there is no price to high for the air we breathe and the beauty of what is natural and untouched. Are other pleasures of life not worth sacrificing so that there can be room in our Nations pride, budgets and hearts ♥️ for the land that is here for u and me?
I have so many childhood memories in this small town, but it's been years since I've been down here. Driving around the past few days have been constant flashbacks to hot summer days playing cards & in backyards with cousins, working in Papas garden, cooking big meals all together and this unmistakable view from just about anywhere in town. #smalltownlove#grateful#allofthememories#liveauthentic#coloradogram#Trinidad#Colorado
